Today we have two fab cards from our DT member Karen to share.

   This first card is using the Giraffe from our Safari Trio. He looks extra cute in blue and the perfect card for any little boy.

Karen's other card has been created using our new Bunny and Me stamp.
I just love how Karen has polka dotted the baby grow and added that cute little bow!

Please head over to Karen's blog to see all of her fantastic work and leave her some love.

I have managed to get some computer time today, so have a quick post to share before I start all my jobs! We have two cards to show, both inspired by the arrival of baby Isobel.
First is featuring our cute Giraffe from our Safari Trio set, I love this little guy and think he is perfect for all kinds of cards.  I have used a Martha Stewart Butterfly border punch and Sizzix letter dies.

For the next card I have used Teddy and Me, this little one is my absolute favourite from our new stamps (it was inspired by some photos I took of Gabriel) and think it looks really good in the vintage brown colours used here.
 The embellishments used include Fancy Lace, Sizzix Button Dies, Marriane D die cut, and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley, which seemed to fit perfectly.  Papers on both cards are from Animal Antics pad.
Im off now to get my chores done, and hopefully add some more lovely new items to our web store.

Thursday 10 March 2011


Thursday already, these days are just flying by!  So baby Gabriel kept me too busy to blog yesterday, which means I have two cards to share today.

First up is definitely one for the boys featuring one of our new stamp sets - Monster Trio.
I have stamped each image, but chosen to colour just one (he's my favourite, I love how he looks all gloopy) with colours to match the papers. To keep things nice and simple, I have just added a few buttons for decoration. Although these stamps are very boyish, they work well for all ages, even the monster loving boys over 10 ; )

My second card for today is also all about the boys, featuring Bunny and Me. This stamp is a bit of a chameleon, just as the other new baby images are, it looks so different just by changing the colours.
Today its a boys theme and this is a good stamp for new babies (can you guess where my inspiration came from) and I think it works well for other celebrations too, such as Christenings and first birthdays.

The bunny has been stamped twice and decoupaged to give extra depth, and I've also added on of our new safety pin charms.

Both images have been coloured with Promarkers and the papers are from the Animal Antics paper pad.

Tuesday 8 March 2011


Happy Tuesday to everyone. Today is the release of our 12 new 'Quirky Individuals' stamps and 2 new stamp sets, and the beginning of our showcase.

To kick things off we have a yummy scrummy card featuring one of our cute fairy stamps - Fairy Cake.
The image has been coloured with Promarkers and embellished with Stickles. The flowers are from Prima and the papers are by Papermania. 

This is one of my favourites from our new stamps, maybe because I'm such a cake face!

We also have a DT update. To everyone who applied last year, please accept our huge apologies for not following up on our DT request.  Towards the end of last year, we had unexpected family issues that took a lot of our time, and as a result could not carry on with the blog.

Now that we are BACK! we hope to re-launch our Challenge blog and DT, and get some fabulous brand spanking new ideas and fresh faces on there.

To keep things fair, we will start our DT request from scratch, giving everyone who wants to try out the same chance, so please keep your eyes peeled, as it won't be a long wait.

Hello everyone, I'm back! After a very very very long absence, I am pleased to say we are back blogging and what better way to start things off than to announce some new arrivals.

The most important one of all is Colette's new baby girl, Isobel Bailey, who will be two weeks old tomorrow!

Now that our little baby Nuts have arrived safe and sound, we are super excited to release our 12 new 'Quirky Individuals' stamps and 2 new stamp sets, all of which are available in the web shop from tomorrow, Tuesday 8th March.

We also have lots of lovely new Charms in stock and by the end of the week, new Mulberry Paper Flowers and lengths of Lace too.
We will be showcasing our new stamp designs all week and hope to have some photos of baby Gabriel and Baby Isobel to share soon.
